Arrowroot Family Office recognizes the importance of a college education, but understands that the financial burden can be gruesome for some families. Yes, college is expensive and the cost is constantly increasing. However, there are certain investment plans and strategies that can make paying for college in the future easier.
There are a number of choices available for those seeking tax-efficient accounts specific to education. These include the TD Ameritrade 529 College Savings Plan, Covered Education Savings accounts, and UGMA/UTMA Custodial accounts.
Sponsored by individual states, these college savings plans offer a level of flexibility and potential tax advantages that can make them a great choice for the right investor. Benefits of a 529 plan vary from state to state. Details of the TD America 529 College Savings Plan include:
These accounts offer federal tax-free earnings and are withdrawn on qualified expenses such as tuition, books, computers, and room & board. While 529 Plans are used exclusively for college, Coverdell Education Savings Accounts (ESAs) can be used for elementary and secondary schooling in addition to college. Additionally, there are no minimum contributions and account owners can contribute up to $2,000 per child per year.
Custodial accounts provide a way to build assets for your children or loved ones’ future, and let you manage a minor’s assets for their benefit. As you build a portfolio, with or without assets from the minor, you will be the guardian of the account, managing it until the minor reaches the age of majority. From the start, the account will be held under the minor’s name and Social Number. Once they are old enough, they will assume control of all assets.
